If flowers can
teach themselves
how to bloom after
winter passes,
so can you.

I have looked at you
in millions of ways and
I have loved you in each

O’ People! Fear God. He hears whatever you say and knows whatever you hide. Prepare yourselves for death. A death from which you try to escape will approach you. Even if you stay where you are, it will overcome you. It will remember you even if you forget it.
Imam Ali (a), Miskhat ul-Anwar (via bu-hashem)
The hijab symbolizes my faith and you want to ban it? Well while you’re at it, let’s ban charity, selflessness, equality amongst races and sexes, being good to your neighbor… Because those are also requirements of a believer. But of course it’s not about freedom, is it really? I make you uneasy because my hijab reminds you that I am trying to obey God and not you. And that bugs you.

in my body
for years
and still need
maps and lights
to find my way

Don’t equate the presence of God with a good mood or a pleasant temperament. God is near whether you are happy or not.
Max Lucado (via theriverjordyn)
Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing.
